The Philosopher King

Plato says this king is not like any other.

Can he led others, or follow when it is better to do so?

Does he know when the people are ready for a new law?

Are his personal values aligned with the values of the people?

Many captains of industry appear to hold the keys to the kingdom.

There are geniuses of every caliper, why not a wise living leader who can work with the people?

Some say this is just a catch all phrase for great leaders like Marcus Aurelius, Jesus Christ, Buddha, mahatma Gandhi, and many others.

Like all these great leaders, there was also good people willing to build a better way.

Who are these kings today?  Who are the good people?  What is the better way?

Subjectively we try to find a better way and practice it’s lessons and build a better life.

Collectively we collaborate and cooperate our teams to build a better way for many of us.

To all those philosopher’s, leaders, good people and better ways…

Noncommunicable diseases

Premature death is the result of lifestyle: smoking, drinking, overeating and consuming toxic substances.

To some degree, we are all causing damage to our metabolism.

We need to make it a priority in society to help people change their lifestyle when they get sick.

There are no good or bad behaviors.

In some sense, there are no good or bad people.

We all have accidents, make mistakes and get judged, addicted and harmed in some way.

The learning process is very painful for the majority of us.

One side of the truth are the facts: go to the world health organization and read them under the above title.

Another truth or more of the truth is that we can help and support each other in all our affairs.

Just because a person gets sick, doesn’t mean they caused it.

There are no worthwhile causes to take on in this world.

We just need each other.

The outcomes arrive when the time is right.

Many learn from their mistakes.

Keats talked about truth and beauty: look it up, Ode To A Grecian Urn.

The Noam Chomsky Channel

Where are his books?

Why not read them?

Same goes for his talks-monologues!

Why not watch the programme?

Are right wing groups really hating him?

Do Zionists hate him?

How much does Chomsky have to tolerate?

He is a very controversial figure.

As long as he keeps talking…

Will his leadership dissolve?

We are all genuinely afraid of terrorism.

Does he give us a better understanding?

Will we ever be able to laugh at our fears?

Is our solidarity being broken down?

Do we care anymore?

Are working people turning against their own interests?

What about drinking water?  The people next door?

Is this fear being manufactured?

Why not lead an activist life?

(All the above is reiterated from “Rebel Without A Pause.”)
